New Scope - What shall i look for?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, i was bought this a while back Buy National Geographic 76mm Newtonian Telescope. at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for .

and ive got 2 things i'd like to ask if thats ok

1) Im having serious problems keeping it still, although there is a mechanism on the scope to keep it rigid in position it doesn't seem to work particularly well and if i find something interesting i cant keep it in position.

2) Im not sure what to actually be looking for if i'm honest, i had some great naked eye/binocular viewing in winter but i cant see anything at the moment. (My only viewing direction is South and SouthWest).

Thanks for reading.
